An Alias is a string between 4 and 30 characters long consisting of lowercase Latin letters, digits and symbols @, -, _, used to simplify transactions.
It is possible to specify aliases instead of full address for asset transfers and leasing transactions.
The cost is limited to 0.001 WAVES (the Tx fee).
The creation of an Alias is very straightforward.
Open your Waves app and log in to your Account. At the top right corner click on the QR-code icon.
The following pop-up will appear.
Click on the Aliases and click on the Create new alias.
Choose an Alias.
You can use only lowercase latin letters, digits and symbols @, -, _, between 4 and 30 chars long.
After you have done it, just click on the Create to complete the procedure.
Your Alias should be ready to use as from the next block update.
